In many parts of India, primarily rural India, girls are denied education. They are forced to work at home while their male counterparts go to school. Besides being terribly oppressive and unfair towards girls, it further denies them access to opportunities that could potentially aid them in reducing the disparity between men and women. The right to education is a basic human right that must be granted to all, irrespective of gender. Give girls their chance, promote education for the girl child.
